10 Reasons Palladium Is The Perfect Place

You have choices – here’s why Palladium is the right one

As the portfolio of all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America expands, it becomes harder and harder for agents to keep up their knowledge. If you don’t know a lot about the Palladium Hotels & Resorts product in Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, here’s a ‘Top Ten’ primer.

Size matters.

With Palladium resorts spanning as much as 173 acres, there’s plenty to explore. The largest resort complex is in Punta Cana, totalling 2,000 guest rooms, 8 pools, 15 dining choices and 26 bars. Yet by separating the resort into 4 different hotels – with sharing privileges at each -- guests get a sense of intimacy enhanced by access to many choices.

It’s a family – and a Famili -- affair.

It’s no wonder 10 different Palladium resorts are members of the Transat Famili Collection. All Grand Palladium Resorts have tiered kids’ clubs – Baby, Mini and Junior Clubs – with programming designed for both fun and education.

In Punta Cana, the 4-property resort combines the Mini Club and Baby Club in one place for a great selection of activities. Castillo del Pirata (Pirate’s Castle) is one of the largest kids’ clubs in the Caribbean.

Master Junior Suites

As for great family accommodations, Family Master Junior Suites are available at Punta Cana’s Grand Palladium Bávaro Suites Resort & Spa. These spacious, specially outfitted accommodations come complete with everything a family could desire.

The colourful canine Raggs TV characters are beloved on-site ambassadors, hosting Mini Club activities, poolside events, a disco party, breakfasts and a hugely popular weekly 50-minute live show spectacular called the Raggs Pirate Show.

Cool as a cucumber.

Guests can dip into the ocean, enjoy a salt-water pool or cool off in clean, fresh water. Palladium Hotels & Resorts ensures travellers have plenty of places to enjoy a morning swim or an afternoon dip with the added bonus of spectacular views. Guests can relax in a poolside hammock or share laughs and libations at a swim-up bar. Also, the new children’s water park is filled with mini-fountains, water slides and trampolines designed as pirate ships. So much to do.

Active travellers are spoiled for choice at Palladium. Athletic activities include volleyball, basketball, aerobics, archery and dancing lessons. Adventurers enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and more. After the sun sets, the entertainment continues -- all resorts offer live music in the lobbies and on the beach.

Foodie frenzy.

Along with the luxury of free room service, Palladium’s all-inclusive properties offer diverse dining options, including buffet and no-reservations-required à la carte choices. Guests can literally take a global food tour and sample Mexican, Asian, Italian, French, Mediterranean and other cuisines.

Palladium takes individual guest needs seriously. Specialized menus including vegetarian, kids and gluten-free options are available upon request. And Palladium is one of the few resort groups with a dedicated food allergy program. Chefs and staff are professionally trained in the preparation of dishes for gluten-free (celiac) and Type 2 Diabetes diets, as well as seven other common allergy/special diets, including allergies to nuts, fruits and vegetables, seafood, eggs, dairy and lactose, fish and monosodium glutamate.

Mind, body and soul.

The Zentropía Palladium Spa & Wellness centres are some of the largest in the Caribbean, Spa options include massages, dry or wet sauna, vapour bath, eco-meditative cold bath or Jacuzzi. To prepare for the big day or glam up an evening, manicures, makeup and hair treatments are an appointment away.

Tweet away.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout Palladium properties. When your clients aren’t surfing the waves they can surf online to share their favourite vacation pictures on social media – or send a note thanking their travel agent for the Palladium recommendation! There’s also a Palladium app that provides resort information and allows guests to chat with each other, among other functions.

Palladium does ‘I Do’ very well.

With a dedicated Weddings by Palladium website and on-site wedding concierge, Palladium provides a romantic haven for your destination wedding couples. Designed in conjunction with New York City wedding planner, Karen Bussen, ‘Simple Stunning Weddings’ packages are custom tailored to fit all the bride’s needs and desires – whether she is a “toes in the sand” kind of gal, or prefers a twist on the classic white wedding.

Making it last.

Palladium Hotels & Resorts is committed to the efficient usage of natural resources. Hotel staff, guests and suppliers all play a role in the resorts’ environmental policies. Palladium encourages the use of biodegradable products, low energy lighting, recycling of solid residue and re-purposing of materials. Palladium uses local products and supports local communities through a variety of initiatives. The solar photovoltaic facility installed on the roof of the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa, is not only the largest in Jamaica, but the largest of its kind in the Caribbean hotel industry.
